Minor units[edit]

Can you give me some tips on which kind of ammendments are you doing to the units I've been adding? Just to avoid double work.

Hey Pserratv. Mostly small things like adding in parent units or merging units that you created that already have a page (First Ramsau Irregulars but we already had 1st Ramsau Irregulars), keep up the good work though man, it is really cool to see how much stuff you are hammering out.--Dmon (talk) 15:26, 11 January 2018 (EST)
Now that I've been working a bit with all these Militia units... I'm unsure of which could be the correct approach: having a parent page for the militia, and then another for the specific sub-units?? Technically speaking, the units are never mentioned, only the sub-units. The "units" for me represent the real global militia, but opinions are welcomed... I could go back and arrange this, no issues.--Pserratv (talk) 09:48, 12 January 2018 (EST)
The way I look at it is that the units are the front line units of the militia who are on station at the time. If you look at the support commands category of any nation state you will find militia units attached to 'Mech regiments. I personally believe that some of the militia units will be "out on loan", this is further supported by some militia units haing quite high numeral unit designations. So I would treat the Militia page in a similar way to a Brigade page. Especially since we know that Militias will often have several regiments of infantry in addition to the forces listed, the militia units are actually quite large..--Dmon (talk) 09:59, 12 January 2018 (EST)
And there is a disparity in the fluff because the Clan Wolf sourcebook lists nearly everything as just "whatever planet militia" but invading clans and the jade falcon book go as far as naming units. I think it comes down to militia units being written off as minor secondary units where in actual fact they likely make up a vast majority of a states military power. Just not 'Mechs.--Dmon (talk) 10:04, 12 January 2018 (EST)

My Bad[edit]

Sorry man, I accidentally reverted your edit while learning my new admin options. 100% my fault, nothing you did wrong. Just re-edited the article. --DragonoftheRust (talk) 00:33, 22 January 2018 (EST)

James Davion[edit]

Hi Dmon, quick question for you - I'm slowly slogging my way through the House Davion personalities as part of hacking back the updates needed list, and I've just got to James Davion. The infobox for James Davion indicates that he had a son, Albie Davion, but I can't find anything in House Davion (The Federated Suns) or Handbook: House Davion about an Albie or Albert Davion, either independently or in any of the text dealing with James Davion or Janet Solway. I went back through the article history, and it looks like you added the detail on Albie - can you give me a steer on where I can find a citation for Albie? Ta!

Hey BM, A lot of the time when I am creating the Character Infobox data I just use a combination of the info that is in the article (and the articles that link), and I have a look at S-Gages House Davion Family Tree that was originally created from the tree published in the back of the House Davion (The Federated Suns) book. If you are using the PDF version of the book (like I do) the family tree is not included so is kind of hard to verify for myself. Dmon (talk) 04:49, 13 February 2018 (EST)

Bloodnamed Famous[edit]

Question: I was reviewing Clan Troops (and still doing), and I decided to add as notable bloodnamed holders the Elementals I'm finding in that book. Not sure if that was your idea. Indeed they are quite minor, maybe not even worth their own page... your comments on this?--Pserratv (talk) 04:55, 28 February 2018 (EST)

Although quite minor in the grand scope of things a bloodnamed warrior is technically still quite important from a Clan cultural aspect. So if there is no better home feel free to put them under the bloodname article and retitle the section as known bloodname holders possibly. We can look at rehoming them again in the future if need be. Dmon (talk) 06:14, 28 February 2018 (EST)

Project Bloodname Assistance[edit]

Hey Dmon, I have been taking a second pass at the bloodname articles you started linking them to the Bloodname tables. This project was one I was going to be doing once I had all the bloodnames sorted, but alas I didn't get to it so cudos to you!

I have been editing them also to reflect the current known status of the Bloodname, in addition to its current location in the Clan engenics program. Be it with another Clan, Reaved, or Tainted via Society interference. Those names that have been absorbed by other Clans I have detailed as well, but of course there is little history or anything that explains what has happened to minor and unused names. So most of the articles state this. Anyways thanks again for starting this, and I will attempt to help when I can. Deadfire (talk) 10:02, 28 February 2018 (EST)

All good Deadfire, I believe that it is a project that the wiki needed (Along with my other one Project House) as we already have all the planets, 'Mechs, vehicles and broad strokes of history. It is time to start digging into the stuff that links everything together. Any help is appreciated. Dmon (talk) 10:17, 28 February 2018 (EST)
